I tried, I really did I just could not finish this. Some blame lies in the guys voice on the audio book but for the most part the story is just boring. Like counting the bumps on a popcorn ceiling is more entertaining kind of boring.

Firs the audio book - the actor pronounced every word with such elocution that it drew it out unusually long. So in the time it took the actor to read one sentence I could have read 4 if I had the actual book. So that is partially why the story felt so incredibly drawn out.

The other reason the story was slow was just because of the way it was written. The plot was slow to catch on, the mystery that Mackey was not who he said he was wasn't much of a mystery, even the town in general knew of the other's existence and that they were among them.

Seriously this was putting me to sleep which was pretty bad considering I was listening to it while driving my hour and something 2 hour commute back and forth to work. Sleep driving is so not recommended.

Still I did give it an extra star for the absolutely creepy vibe it had - whether that was due to hearing the words or the story itself I have no idea. But it was creepy.

All in all though, I am not wasting any more of my time on this. Next book!

Sandy This was not for me. It took a bit of skimming near the end to finish. You're not missing anything!
